Performance-based regulation: Aligning incentives with clean energy outcomes

Placing consumers at the heart of the energy transition is central to the regulatory reforms in the Clean Energy for All Europeans legislation.

Performance-based regulation can provide incentives to network operators to deliver outcomes consistent with public policy goals, the clean energy transition and more traditional concerns such as reliable and affordable electricity supply.
